§ Mr. Tilley
asked the Lord Privy Seal how many people are (a) in Crown service, in each of the Dependent Territories and in which categories of employment and (b) in paid or unpaid service—not falling within paragraph (a) above—as a member of any body established by law, in each of the dependent territories, members of which are appointed by or on behalf of the Crown.
§ Mr. Luce
The numbers in Crown service in each of the Dependent Territories are given in the attached list.
I have had to consult certain of the Dependent Territories and will write to the hon. Gentleman as soon as I have the details.
Prosecutions and, although offences were at one time reportable to him, they have not been so since 1 January 1979. This is reflected by a big drop in the number of prosecutions conducted by the Director in that year, the last for which any figures are available. I am unable to give figures for proceedings conducted by other prosecutors; those for the Director for the years 1976 to 1979 are given in the table below:—
Year Persons prosecuted by the Director of Public Prosecutions 1976 16 1977 15 1978 11 1979 4
